look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A bomber with a packed on date sticker on the cap that reads 09/21/17. Pouring in a 12oz. tulip for the review.

Look- Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow producing a small finger of creamy white foam that slowly settles to a ring around the glass. Tiny carbonation bubbles can be seen surfacing. It resembles a wheat beer.

Smell- Dank weed, passionfruit, floral notes and spice. A hint of grapefruit and pineapple appear next.

Taste- Dank weed, fresh cut flowers, passionfruit, grapefruit and a little peppery spice in the finish.

Feel- Pillowy soft and creamy with a slightly bitter dry finish.

Overall- A very appropriately named beer as it is dank and weedy with a big floral and spice presence. The feel is crazy soft making this one very easy drinking IPA. Another winner from La Cumber!

Hazy gold color. Half-finger head that lingers and laces nicely. Lots going on with the nose. Strong scents of tropical fruit, floral, honeysuckle and mineral. Love the taste of this beer. Very well balanced between the hops and the malt. Strong flavors of pomegranate, pine, grapefruit and peach. Medium body. Nice medium-length finish coats the palate.

Pours a cloudy gold with decent head and very good lacing. Nose is hoppy citrus with some floral tones and grapefruit. The taste is just awesome, very sweet hoppy goodness with a refreshing citrus mix, a little dry and very mild bite on the finish. I really enjoyed this beer, the hops were so tasty, just a juicy goodness.

On tap at the brewhouse taproom in July 2017. Nice hops aromas; hugely out of balance in flavor and bitterness toward in-your-face hoppiness. I found it enjoyable, but not overly distinctive compared to any number of other huge hop bomb IPAs.

22 oz. Bomber
Bottled On: 5/9/17

Poured into a tulip a pretty nice hazy dark golden orangy color, pretty nice carbonation, with a pretty nice creamy one-finger off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight maltyness, nice touch of citrus, nice diesel like. The taste is pretty nice, hoppy, slightly malty, very nice touch of citrus, nice diesel like. Medium body, ABV hidden very well, with a nice dry/bitter finish. Overall, another pretty tasty brew from La Cumbre. Nice to see this one around here.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass. Cloudy golden yellow color with a short lived white head and good lacing. Smell of vanilla, pine and oranges. Silky feel. The taste is a bit boozy , with caramel, citrus, and lots of hoppy bitterness. Comes off like an imperial IPA.
